  • Materials: Sese wood, aluminum
  • Decorative
  • Dimensions: 18.1 inches high x 4.7 inches wide x 2.4 inches deep

Story Behind the Art:
'I always knew I wanted to paint, but wasn't sure I could make a living out of it, so I looked into other fields too,' recalls Abdul Aziz Mohamadu. 'I observed master carver Musa at his workshop for a period of time, then I picked up a log of wood and started carving out a mask as I had observed him doing. This surprised Musa and he was willing to help me perfect the skill. I developed a love for this new art, and that's how I eventually became a master carver too!'
